Hi Brian,

I was hoping to see a section covering evidence storage. Any reason why it wasn't included?

Thanks

What aspect of evidence storage? Do you mean where video is stored or how long or? Please elaborate.

No, I am looking at all seized evidence and the storage of same. Of course the highest risk exhibits such as money, drugs and firearms are of the most concern. Security of exhibits is a high priority for police and is up there with lock up/interview rooms and the areas where there is public interaction.

I just thought it might be somethying you want to consider if and when your guide gets updated.

Thanks

Got it, good question.

In this survey, we just focused on video surveillance but we will consider it for future ones.

In addition, I just started a discussion on: Evidence Storage In Police Stations to see if we can get some feedback.
